Illegal invaders living in the United States are already starting to flee the country in the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory, the “Washington Secrets” column in the Washington Examiner has reported.
This follows the realization that the 1.4 million invaders who signed up to Barack Obama’s “amnesty” offers have now only succeeded in handing immigration authorities a ready-made deportation list.
The Washington Examiner, which based its article on a blog post by the Center for Immigration Studies’s John Miano, said that the 1.4 million illegals who signed up for the amnesty programs were now “top of the deportation hit list” under a new Trump administration.Stay Connected With Us
In his post, Miano said that he had pointed out four years ago that that “fundamental problem” with Obama’s two orders, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) was that it could be reversed by a new president.
At the time, Miano said that Obama’s “deferred action” program, which effectively granted amnesty, allowed illegal aliens who registered with the government to “avoid deportation and get a work permit.”
However, he wrote, the “key word here is deferred. The current president might be able to get away with not enforcing the law. But what about the next president? Or the one after that?”
Miano went on to point out that this “administrative amnesty can be swept aside by any subsequent president. A new president who decides to enforce the law will have, thanks to Obama, 1) a list of people who are in the country illegally, 2) information on where to find them, and 3) an admission that they are in the country illegally.”
This would, he added, be a “major asset for future enforcement.”
In his new post, titled “The Coming End of DACA and DAPA,” Miano went on to say that anyone who signed up for DACA would be adding their names to a list of self-identified illegal aliens. Should a future administration decide that it would start enforcing the law, the DACA program would provide a list of prime candidates for deportation.
“At the time, this was so obvious that I was surprised anyone would be stupid enough to sign up for DACA and DAPA. Yet apparently hundreds of thousands of people did so anyway,” he said, referring to the fact that, according to official U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services data, exactly 1,443,762 invaders had signed up.
Miano went on to point out that the invaders so listed would have no legal protection should a Trump administration overturn Obama’s executive orders—something which Trump made an election platform.
Even though the Department of Homeland Security had specifically told the invaders that “information provided in [the DACA] request is protected from disclosure to ICE and CBP for the purpose of immigration enforcement proceedings,” Miano said that there “was no legally binding way to prevent such a disclosure in the future. DHS covered itself by saying ‘This policy may be modified, superseded, or rescinded at any time without notice.’”
He went on to add that even “before the election, some people noticed the precarious state of DACA recipients. Now that the election is over and it is clear that DACA and DAPA will soon be kaput, people are beginning to realize that DACA and DAPA have created a list of prime candidates for deportation with names, addresses, and an admission of illegal alien status.
“Having authorization to work in the United States is independent of having authorization to be in the United States. The fact that illegal aliens have been granted work permits under DACA and DAPA is no shield against deportation,” Miano concluded.
The Washington Examiner then went on to say that they had “already received reports that illegals are already starting to leave the country. One source said that some in Virginia left for the border on Wednesday, the day Donald Trump was declared the winner.”
According to the USCIS, the invaders who signed up for the two executive orders came from 23 different countries. Only one, Poland, was European, while another, Argentina, has a significant European population.
However, the vast majority, including over one million from Mexico alone, come from nonwhite countries.
Nationalities of DACA and DAPA signups, listed from largest to smallest number:
Mexico 1,051,959; El Salvador 30,995; Guatemala 22,031; Honduras 20,458; Peru 9,318; Brazil 7,978; Korea, South 7,480; Ecuador 7,219; Colombia 6,951; Philippines 4,818; Argentina 4,827; Jamaica 4,155; India 3,608; Dominican Republic 3,463; Venezuela 3,299; Trinidad and Tobago 2,908; Uruguay 2,341; Costa Rica 2,153; Bolivia 2,127; Pakistan 1,853; Poland 1,837; Chile 1,786; Nicaragua 1,700; Korea 1,634; and Nigeria.
Over half of this total, 607,000, live in just two states—California and Texas.
Two invaders interviewed yesterday by the AFP in the Mexican border city of Tijuana, both said that they had already abandoned their plans to cross the border when they heard the outcome of the election.
Both said they feared that if they are caught, their family members living north of the border might suffer.
“Imagine if they stop me, after a while my family living over there would have problems. The truth is I never imagined that the blond man might win,” Samuel told AFP.
